Boost Mobile Adding $5 to Android Plans Starting Oct. 6
Boost Mobile today announced that it is making some adjustments to its Android voice and data plans starting October 6, one day before the Samsung Transform Ultra launches. Boost Mobile is adding a $5 monthly charge to the cost of its Android smartphone plans. Its Monthly Unlimited plans will still include unlimited talk, text, and web. Existing Monthly Unlimited customers will be able to keep their $50 plan without the added surcharge, but any customer who upgrades to a CDMA-based Android phone after October 6 will be subject to the $5 monthly charge. Boost also announced that the Android plans will be eligible for its Shrinkage program, which drops the monthly plan cost by $5 for every six months of on-time payments.
